Is It Ok For Christians To Go Clubbing?

Partying all night, going in and out of nightclubs, drinking, smoking and having sex; people go on clubbing for different reasons, but most of these reasons seem to be full of lustful desires. Frankly speaking, most of our religious enthusiasts consider nightclubs as a part of the world that is manipulated by Satan and all the things being done here are acts by the devil. They are designed for the purpose of giving in into one’s sinful desires. Some would probably defend themselves by saying that they just go there for music and dancing, but they cannot deny the fact that deep inside them there are irresistible desires they cannot control unless they don’t come to that place.

*Is there still hope for the people who do this?You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;  to be made new in the attitude of your minds;  and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24

There are some who got tired of partying especially when they grow old and become mature and responsible adults. But there are those who still can’t stop the call of sexual and other sinful desires. However, there is still hope for them. They just need to let go of this bad habit, ask for forgiveness to the Lord and repent, and walk through righteousness without looking back.

*What must you do to get over your sinful desires like to go clubbing?In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

To go clubbing is sometimes due to the influence of others like your friends. you are being called killjoy if you join them. But instead of being swayed and corrupted with their deceitful desires, why not influence them instead of doing something fun but righteous. You can either start a new hobby or sport or go nature tripping, mountain climbing, etc. These are not only productive but fun and righteous at the same time.
